Sometimes when I list items, I don't always know how much they'll bring or if they'll sell at all. Often I just think they are neat and take the chance when I purchase them that they will be favored by someone else. So is the case with the vintage goldtone Gillette safety razor I picked up at an estate for $1.00. That's right, I paid a $1 and figure that anything is worth the risk at that price....
As a seasoned seller, I am aware that if buyers start to ask you to remove items at Buy it Now prices, they are usually willing to or have spent a great deal more for said item. So it has always been my policy to not remove an auction listing for a buy it now offer. It says so right there under the description of absolutely every item I have for sale...but still they ask, and often get testy with me. I have great credit, I have awesome feedback, I'm trustworthy, I'm honest, etc....
So here is my item of the week that happens to be giving me a headache from all the little messages I am receiving....Now back to work, I'll let you know later what the final sales price is for my $1.00 razor.
The razor sold for 33.00 on 3/12!

Headed out to an estate sale this morning, I almost talked myself out of it because it was so cold and starting to snow again...but I needed groceries, so I was going to have to get out anyway. Luckily the line to get in was moving as soon as I got into it, so I didn't have to stand out in the cold long....
I picked up a small stash of jewelry...
Black ribbon & rhinestone shoe clips, red glass rosary
Brass shoe clips, Lisner rhinestone & enamel brooch
Cloissone necklace, Embroider flower necklace, Agate & pearl butterfly brooch, 1928 charm necklace, Lions club pin
Glass pearls w/ rhinestone clasp, rectangular art deco brooch with square rhinestones, Victorian Stick pin, blue moonglow necklace, religious medal, crystal rhinestone choker necklace
Goldette bracelet, Reed & Barton necklace and two goldfilled spider web necklaces
A decorative brass cup / saucer display holder, Italy gold gilt trinket box and a Cloisonne lighter case
Italy gold gilt dresser tray
Turned out okay for a quick run.....spent all my potential profits at Target and Hyvee....so back to work I go!!!
